This past weekend we celebrated the Independence of our Great Country ~ The United States of America. After being subjected to an unprecedented ‘lockdown‘ by the powers that be for over a year, patriots let loose in multi-colored fashion!

All across the nation – from sea to shining sea Americans held the colors high and celebrated with a passion I have not seen …. well, ever! And believe me, we celebrated like crazy back in ‘my’ day. But this was different – there was a call for freedom in the air, a passionate, soul-searching desire to prove to the world that ~ ‘our flag is still there`!

The neighborhood where my family celebrated was only one of many across the land where rockets roared and music blared and children danced in the street. Neighbors joined neighbors and laughter filled the littered streets as each person experienced the exhilaration of truly ‘being free’ in the land of the free.

As the National Anthem was played and replayed….the last stanza of that wonderful song seemed to epitomize the essence of the evening….let’s read it together and reflect on the truth within:

O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,

Between their lov’d homes and the war’s desolation;

Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land

Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,

And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
